Vaping is the process of heating an e-liquid into vapour and then inhaling. The e-liquids used can be with or without nicotine.
An ohm is the measure of electrical resistance of the coil inside an atomizer or tank. It is normally shown using this symbol – Ω.
There are two types of vaping – Mouth to lung (MTL) and straight to lung (STL). MTL is similar to how you would smoke a cigarette, whilst STL is inhaling straight into your lungs.
For hardware, most brands that we distribute have a scratch-off verification code (sometimes called “Scratch & Check”) which you can use to verify that products from the manufacturer are genuine via their website. It’s not a legal requirement, therefore not all products have the code. Most e-liquids do not come with a verification code, therefore the best way to know that they are genuine is to purchase through a registered, official retailer like Inovape. All our products are 100% authentic, we only purchase from official distributors and suppliers whose products comply with industry legal standards.
Studies from the British Medical Association have shown that vaping is more than 95% less harmful than smoking. The NHS are supporting the use of ecigs in their quit smoking/ stoptober campaigns. There is no carbon monoxide or tar within the vapour, as confirmed by doctors and recent studies by the Royal College of Physicians.
If the coil is over saturated the excess e-liquid within the atomiser may flood the tank and you could end up with droplets of liquid on your lips / in your mouth. If you get e-liquid in your mouth, it is advised to rinse your mouth out with plenty of water. To remove any of the excess liquid still on the atomiser simply place a tissue over the mouth piece and flick mouth piece of the vape downwards towards the floor. The excess liquid will be flicked onto the tissue and the atomiser will be clear for normal use.
Vaping can work out to be between 50 – 90% cheaper than cigarette smoking.
To purchase any vape product or any e-liquid, you have to be 18 years old or over. You may need to verify your age with a driving licence or passport when you visit a store and are lucky enough to look under 18! When ordering online you may need to pass an age verification check before purchasing products. On this site that was the pop-up when you clicked onto the site.
Some people use these as a tool to cut down the amount of tobacco they use and others can completely come off of tobacco products using electronic cigarettes. Please be aware that as with any product that replaces smoking. completely coming off of tobacco requires willpower. “There is growing evidence that e-cigarettes can help people stop smoking. Using an e-cigarette can help you manage your nicotine cravings. To get the best out of it, make sure you’re using it as much as you need to and with the right strength of nicotine in your e-liquid. You won’t get the full benefit from vaping unless you stop smoking cigarettes completely. You can get advice from specialist vape shops or your local stop smoking service.” – NHS, 2018.
It is not illegal to vape indoors. However, some places have starting banning use of electronic cigarettes indoors. There may be “No Smoking” signs up in public places and a lot of these now include e-cigarettes.
It is ok to travel with an e-cigarette depending on your destination. It is advisable to check with the local customs office of the country you are visiting to find out if they permit the carriage of electronic cigarettes. If you do take a tank on a plane then it would be best if you remove as much e-liquid as possible as the air pressure can cause tanks to leak. E-liquids can be transported with your toiletries bag. You are not allowed to use your electronic cigarette on the plane.
The flavours differ widely, however if you choose a tobacco flavoured liquid they will more closely resemble smoking a cigarette than a fruity flavour, for example.
Yes, the vapour can produce a scent. Some scents can be pleasant to you but not to others, so please take this into consideration if you are using your e-cigarette in confined spaces.
Some people will use their electronic cigarette very regularly, taking a couple of puffs or more every hour, whilst others may use it in the same way as if they were smoking cigarettes. If you would normally smoke a cigarette then you can use your vape instead in the same pattern as smoking.
As electronic cigarettes give out vapour there is no second hand smoke, but people may experience second hand vapour inhalation if you use your electronic cigarette in a space that is not ventilated or is confined. According to NHS, there is no evidence that exposure to e-cigarette vapour is harmful for bystanders.
